What could be wrong if when you wake up in the morning you get a sudden sick feeling and get really hot sweats to the point you have to lay on the cold floor and it usually only lasts a few minutes?
It depends, male, female, age??? Females around late 40's go through menopause. That's exactly what it sounds like. Even younger females who have had their ovaries removed go through the same thing. It could also be thyroid problems, in which case you should see your doctor. It is not obvious good for you to be feeling this way. Many things can cause it, but we'd be guessing because we aren't doctors. To calm you down a little it could be (as the above poster said) your thyroid gland, also it could be your adrenal gland. You could be suffering from malnutrition, anemia or a variety of other things. If you have been under a lot of stress or been through a trauma it could well be an anxiety attack. Anxiety attacks cause excessive sweating, nausea, dizziness, a feeling of panic and wanting to run away and hide. Also, if you are on ANY medications please look your medication up on www.google.com Find out what the side effects are. When you get up in the morning sit on the side of the bed. Don't just jump out of the bed and go to the washroom. Sit for 5 minutes, then slowly get up. I stress that you should see your doctor as soon as you can. Don't panic, you're probably OK and it's something that is easily fixable. Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
